Principles of Sonic Occultism: Now Available!




The end of 2015 is swiftly approaching and now it's time to announce the final title for the year: "The Principles of Sonic Occultism: Sound as Magic". I'm glad to have finally completed this work, which I first announced back in spring and had already completed by early Autumn, shelving the final proofreading as I worked at editing a pair of works that couldn't wait.

Most occult works which are written in modernity focus either just on history and a secular treatment of magick, or they delve into do it yourself content and have an uncertain view to actual recorded history. With this work, as with its larger cousin "Fruits of Eden" I seek to solve this discrepancy in the occult literary realm. From the Muses of Greece to modern pop music, where is the genuine occult symbolism? How do we categorize the use of occult imagery and sound in mainstream culture? What are these based on? How are they used? How does this relate to society and politics? In this work I've explored all of these concepts and more, putting it all together in a manner which I hope is both user friendly and informative.
